NEW YORK � October 1, 2008 � Oxygen celebrates its most successful quarter ever for both primetime and total day. Per Nielsen Media Research data, the third quarter of 2008 was the network's most watched quarter among all key demos including P18-49, W18-49, W18-34 and total viewers. Oxygen now ranks 22 (up from ranking 29 in Q3 2007) for W18-49 and is the fastest growing cable network among the top thirty ad-supported entertainment cable networks.

In primetime Q3, Oxygen averaged a 0.5 coverage rating (up 67% versus Q3 2007) with 238,000 P18-49 (a 47% increase), 177,000 W18-49 (a 51% gain), 84,000 W18-34 (up 42%) and 448,000 total viewers (a gain of 45%). This marks Oxygen's 13th consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth in primetime on P18-49, W18-49 and W18-34.

It was the network's 18th consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth for the network among P18-49, W18-49 and total viewers on a total day basis.

Oxygen's digital properties also saw their best quarter ever, due in large part to the success of the "Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood" and "The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency" microsites. Accumulating 51.8 million page views this quarter saw a 193% increase over second quarter 2008. With 12.2 million page views in September, the website celebrates it best September ever.

In total day, Oxygen averaged 0.3 coverage rating (up 50% from last September) with 136,000 P18-49 (a 26% gain), 101,000 W18-49 (up 28%), 47,000 W18-34 (a 12% gain), and 238,000 total viewers (a 25% gain).

Oxygen's original programming contributed to this quarter's success for the network. Key players were "The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency" as well as "Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood," which became the most successful season of any Oxygen original series. Adding to this quarter's success was the world broadcast premiere of the movie "Rumor Has It" on July 12; with a 1.3 coverage rating it became Oxygen's highest rated and most watched theatrical telecast ever.
